After obtaining my bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology, I completed my master’s in molecular engineering via a master project in the group of Professor Bert Meijer. This project focused on the coil-to-globule transition of single-chain polymeric nanoparticles with a chiral internal secondary structure. Next, I joined the group of James Hedrick at IBM Almaden Research Center for a six-month internship, working on recyclable, self-healing and super-strong polymer materials. I rejoined the group of Professor Bert Meijer as a doctoral candidate in the spring of 2014.
Currently, I am working on the design and utilization of single-chain polymeric nanoparticles as the building block in responsive materials and superstructures.
